Human - Mouse: Disease Connection search refinements

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) and Mammalian Phenotype (MP) Ontology are distinct vocabularies that cover similar concepts. With this release, we added a tool to find related terms in the two ontologies and add these to a Human - Mouse: Disease Connection (HMDC) phenotype ID search. This permits you to find both human and mouse phenotypic results when searching by ID.

Previously, when you used the Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) Browser, and you clicked on the number of annotations, the search forwarded to the HMDC and the search was limited to just human phenotype annotations. With this release, however, use the “Click to modify search” button and you will have the option of finding and adding related mammalian phenotype terms to the HMDC search results.
